Due to COVID-19, the College Board announced a modification to their May 2020 exams that will allow students to test at home. The College Board will be giving students a grade for each of their registered AP exams on the normal 1-5 scale. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to supporting our incoming students and ensuring that they have a smooth transition to their higher education studies. Thus, based on the calculated grades that the College Board will provide, Illinois will continue to award academic credit for strong performance on all AP exams. The credit policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2020, Fall 2020, or Spring 2021. Only scores resulting in credit are shown.
If you are not seeing the new 2020-2021 policies in either the webpage or the downloadable PDF, please clean out your cache and refresh the page.
For descriptions of the courses listed in the table below, please see the Courses of Instruction section in the Academic Catalog.
Course numbers listed as 1 - - or 2 - - are considered elective credit within the stated subject area. This is because our campus does not have an equivalent course that corresponds to the AP course. Students can apply elective credit towards their graduation requirements. Students should consult with their academic advisor to determine how this test-based credit may best be used to meet their specific curriculum and program requirements.
